Re: Rainbow Cup

Do away with the Captain's Challenge instead have a Coaches Challenge -- provide the coach with a means to message the TMO to review an incident --again only one challenge per half admissible . Any re Henshaw In the Payne incident we had a referee who saw the an outcome and looked for an offence mis...

Re: Rainbow Cup

Ok get it right ffs Shanners made to or three appalling mistakes and got turnover at least twice Doak has a lot of work to do on his pass consistence passes to players shoulders to often at the moment. if lowry had been out half he would be tackled in the air. But like I said before the match I didn...

Re: Rainbow Cup

The major difference is in the front rows and back rows -- both teams have flawed half back partnerships and i have always considered the the leinster backline a little over valued in terms of quality, Henshaw can be a bit iffy, on form an excellent back but -- a Lions jersey -- might take a bit of ...

Re: Rainbow Cup

The score line depends on whether Ulster turn up -- which given the opposition and the fact that Ulster have something to prove might have a bearing on the game so it might be closer than some think. but ulster being a couple of players short of full strength I don't expect a win.

Re: Rainbow Cup

Once the Olympics are over I would expect many of the sevens guys to revert back to 15 with next years wings to be Balacoune and Sexton with Stockdale at full back . This of course could be the reason Stockdale has been given so much game time this year at full back. and Lowry given time at Out Half...

Re: Rainbow Cup

I would judge nothing in the last couple of matches in the Rainbow Pisspot to be honest . The players had little interest before the leicester game and having lost to Connaught nobody was setting out to die in the effort to win against Munster Provided the backs can stay free of injury and we fine a...

Re: Rainbow Cup

The Captain's Challenge In two games to date the Captains challenge has been used contrary to the law which says you should do nothing to identify a foul by an opponent ie something which could see a player sent off . 3 times it has been used to identify high tackles -- high tackles etc should be id...

Re: Rainbow Cup

The back play was poor, first slow service or recycle due the nature of Munster tackle and roll interference in front of the scrum half allowing a marginal offside rush defence and then to be honest a second choice pair of wingers . As said previously McIlroy ticks all the boxes except the likelihoo...

Re: Rainbow Cup

In Fairness on occasions refs and refs assistants have cost Ulster games especially in" Interpros" last night one touch judge was adding a few yards to the distance to the try line but then some might say the disadvantage was short lived due to the next penalty ----- but that fails to take account o...

A book to be read by all re the Lions "When the going gets Tough" With 4 games before the tests -- with all positions on the test side open ? There is good odds that after the 4th match there could be a number of players sidelined --- how successful the test side is could well depend on how well som...

Re: Lions 2021

Alwyn as Captain? An excellent Captain of Men but that's the good news, the bad news, like Sexton his best games are a matter of history and the fact is if he wasn't Captain he might not make the 15. Sexton was never in the frame in my opinion -- his questionable durabily is just a polite way of say...

Re: Ulster in the Challenge Cup

It is a pity those stats aren't shown in relation to the two halves of the match. The other information not disclosed is the amount and location of possession per half. My feeling was that Ulster were penalised more in the second half than the first. In the first half Ulster were penalised in their ...
